Note from The Wimbledon website:

The seeds are the top 32 players on the ATP ranking list, BUT then rearranged on a surface-based system. Since 2002 a seeding committee has not been required for the Gentlemen’s Singles following an agreement made with the ATP.

The seeding order is determined using an objective and transparent system to reflect more accurately an individual player’s grass court achievements. It is based on giving additional credit for grass court performance in the two year period immediately before the date used for seeding for The Championships. The formula is:

– Take the ATP Ranking points at 24 June 2019

– Add 100% of the points earned for all grass court tournaments in the immediate past 12 months period prior to 24 June 2019

– Add 75% of the points earned for the best grass court tournament in the 12 months prior to that

The draw for Wimbledon will take place on June 28, Friday while the tournament start next week.
